The work of the American sociologist Leo A. Goodman is typical of this approach. Goodman, who has substantive interests in demography, social mobility, and stratification generally, has pioneered the use of loglinear and latent structure techniques in the analysis of contingency tables. Analysing Quantitative/Categorical Data (1978), a collection of ten articles published between 1970 and 1975, is a representative collection of his writings. For a more recent example see The Analysis of Cross-Classification Having Ordered Categories (1984)
